There is also a lock mechanism that requires a 5mm deep well socket on an extension. This must be unlocked prior to thaking the locking lever on the outside of the headlight housing. The newer Beetle's have the stamp V2 (version 2) on the outside housing facing the motor.

They can be a real pain believe me.i recomend taking to dealer.if you want to try there is a hooked shaped plastic lever in the housing for headlight under bonnet..you have to release it by pushing in a plastic tag underneath it then push down hook the headlight SHOULD then slide forward so you can take it out.But they are a **** idea and i really would take it to a dealer

You might have to jiggle the headlight while doing this, dust and rock particles get wedged in the tracks making it hard to slip out.

SOURCE: mazda cx-7 2008 left headlight stopped working,

check the wiring from the headlight. You want to find the ground wire which is usually a black wire thats secured to some metal part of the car. Basically just check that all your wires are in tact and tightly secured. A bad ground is a very common electrical problem.

SOURCE: 2008 HHR LS can't get to drivers side headlight bu...

The procedure is in the owners manual, but it is not easy. You need to turn the wheels in (to right for drivers side) and then shut car off. Then you will need to loosen the inside front wheel well, which is plastic, until you can bend it out of the way enough to reach inside to the bulb. The bulb twists out with a 1/4 turn to the left and then unplugs. Just a hint, make sure that the gasket comes out with the bulb and that you only use one when you reinstall the new bulb. Since you have an LS you don't have fog lights, but that bulb is replaced the same way.

How do i remove the head light on a 2008 chevy Malibu


Headlights grow dimmer by up to 20% over time and eventually burn out - for this reason, we recommend changing your headlights in pairs. Changing both headlight bulbs on your Malibu at the same time will allow both bulbs to have the same intensity and prevent the new headlight bulb from appearing brighter than the bulb on the opposite side. In some Chevrolets, the highbeam is the same bulb as the headlight and it is possible for the highbeam to work, but the headlight be burnt out even if they are the same bulb (and vise versa). Some Chevrolets have high intensity discharge headlights, sometimes referred to as xenon lights. These bulbs have a very high voltage that runs through them, even if the battery is disconnected. If your Malibu has this type of bulb, we do not recommend that you attempt to change it yourself.

When you change the headlight on your Malibu, it is important to not touch the glass part of the bulb with your fingers because the oil from your fingertips will cause that part of the bulb to burn hotter, which significantly shortens the life of the bulb.

Hope this helps! :)

I have a 2008 aveo. i took off the headlight but i can not get the plastic casing off to change the bulb.


If you are talking about the headlight casing, where the clear headlight casing connects to your back headlight casing, that isn't the way to change the light bulb, you're going to damage the seals that protect water, and humidity.

How to change the headlight bulb 2008 yukon


Open the hood, above each headlight is 2 rods, unlatch the rods and lift striaght up, the headlight will now lift out and you can replace the bulb, It turns about 1/3 of a turn left to unlatch the bulb. After the bulb is replaced, set headlight back in place and push the rods back down, you may need to wiggle the light housing to align the holes so the rods seat all the way down.

How do you change the headlights in a 2008 beetle?


The headlight bulb is a major pain in the **** to replace. The average bug owner could not replace it themselves without damaging things. You have to remove the entire headlight assembly and disassemble it on the bench. And a lot of times you break the bucket going back in.

The dealer charges almost $100 bucks to replace the bulb.
If your determined to try go here and get the info.
